    Laptop Recommendations - Budget - £350

    Having secured a refund on a faulty Toshiba laptop, I now have to find my daughter a replacement laptop with a budget of £350.

    Unlikely to get as good as the faulty laptop per pound (it was an official Toshiba refurb and had an AMD dual core processor, 4gb DDR2 ram, 500gb hard drive and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 dedicated graphics card).

    So, minimum requirements would be a dual core processor, f 320gb hard drive but preferably 500gb, 3gb ram and a graphics card or integrated graphics that is capable of playing sims 3 and handling video editing software.

    This could be a tall order but with January sales and end of line discounts might be able to find something suitable.

    For example would any of the following do the job?

    MSI CR610 Blu-ray 500GB (£370 at argos ebay outlet)
    argos.co.uk/sta…htm

    AMD Turion 2 dual core M300.1.9GHz processor
    4GB DDR2 RAM memory.
    500GB SATA hard drive.
    ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card with 256MB memory.

    MSI CR630 15.6IN Blu-ray £360 at argos ebay outlet
    argos.co.uk/sta…htm

    AMD Athlon X2 dual core P320 2.1GHz
    4GB DDR3 RAM
    320gb hdd
    ATI Radeon HD 4270 graphics card with 256MB memory.

    Anything else people can point me in the direction of will be much appreciated.
